Meal Plan Mondays & Shameless Post-Birthday Plug

This week…

Monday : Potato Chowder with baking-powder biscuits (I love biscuits so much!).

Tuesday : 3-Bean Chili with cornbread.  We haven’t had chili since Mihl came to visit – what’s up with that?

Wednesday : Burritos (aka, finishing up the rest of the chili!).

Thursday : Beany-Patties, mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy, peas, and green salad.  Big ole’ meal of comfort foods!

Friday : Pizza Night!

I’ve still been enjoying recipes from The Urban Vegan’s tester site :

No-Bake Energy Bars

Spiked Chocolate-Banana Smoothie…

We celebrated my birthday (wee!) over the weekend, and it was the perfect occasion to enjoy some of these spiked chocolate-banana smoothies – in moderation, of course!  We also tested some Raspberry Spritzers (with champagne!), also for Dynise, but it was so dark I didn’t try to take a picture…

Wee!  Look at this most excellent gift from Guppy and Monsieur F!  I’m a big fan of the 60s, and The Mamas & Papas?  Lovely.

My MIL bought me roses and a scarf, too.  I’m still learning to play with the effects on my Nikon D3000…I’ve had it since June, but hardly do much other than point and shoot.  Shame on me.  Mama & Papa Fish sent me the best running jacket ever, but I need to ask M. Fish to take a picture of me wearing it!

I will get the translation for the Lemon Gressini Cookies up tomorrow!  Our making merry got in the way of my blogging this weekend, forgive me?

Do you blog your weekly meal plans?  Let me know, I’d love to link to your plan to share the planning mojo with everyone.  And don’t forget, if you’re looking for meal plan inspiration you can visit the MPM archives.
